Bridge project continues between Hebo and Grand Ronde

DOLPH JUNCTION—There will be two full weekend closures in October as work on the culvert replacement project at Sourgrass Creek on OR 22 continues. OR 22 between Hebo and Grand Ronde in western Yamhill County will be closed the weekends of October 4-7 and 25-28 from 7 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Monday.  

The project, which started in May, replaces the failing culvert with a bridge on OR 22 near mile point 11.3, about three quarters of a mile east of Dolph Junction (OR 130/OR 22). The two full weekend closures will allow the project to be completed by October 31.

The weekend closures are complete closures with no thru traffic allowed to use the road at mile point 11.3. During the closures, traffic will be detoured using U.S. 101 and OR 18.

The work is weather dependent so the closures could be re-scheduled to other weekends depending on weather conditions.

The weekday construction has required single lane closures and 24 hour traffic control by flaggers. Variable message signs have been posted at various locations to warn travelers of the construction, potential delays and closures.

Access for pedestrians, including those with disabilities, will be available and identified through or around the work zones.
